Description: Bradford knives are made in the Pacific Northwest by Brad Larkin. His background working in an aerospace machine shop is clearly evident in these high performance knives. The Guardian 5.5 is the newest addition to his lineup of high performance outdoor knives.
The Guardian 5.5 is a heavy duty bushcrafting blade based on the Guardian 5, but with a longer handle and a choil-less design. The new handle design accommodates more grip options for a larger variety of tasks.
The blade is made from CPM-3V carbon steel, providing maximum resistance to breakage and chipping in a high wear-resistant steel. It has a Nimbus finish, a tumbled DLC coating which helps hide additional scratches and adds a cool look. The full flat ground blade has been double tempered and cryo treated providing maximum edge retention. The spine features a 90° angle for striking a ferro rod.
The scales are formed from G-Wood, a stylish new laminate made from thin sheets of stabilized wood with layers of G10 in between. When machined in a contour they produce a beautiful, durable, natural pattern that is extremely appealing and unique. The contoured grip features a micro-texture to offer a secure grip without being abrasive. A hole at the end of the handle makes it easy to add a lanyard. The scales can be removed for detailed cleaning or if new scales are desired.
This knife includes a premium pouch style leather sheath with belt loop.
